All Shall Fade (Preview)


The Surface has fallen, and the Dungeon is the only place left for us. It is filled with primordial horrors and reality warping magic. We emptied the prisons, armed the inmates, and set them loose. You’re the worst we’ve got. You’re our only hope.

Dark Fantasy Dungeon Crawl. Touchstones: Darkest Dungeon, Diablo, Dark Souls/Bloodborne, Cthulhu Mythos, Suicide Squad comics, The Mines of Moria from The Lord of the Rings.

All Shall Fade is a tabletop roleplaying game about criminals unleashed upon a terrifying hellscape subterranean Dungeon, who have to carve out a new home for humanity. It’s bloody. It’s brutal. You’re probably not going to survive. It is Forged in the Dark, being based on the Blades in the Dark rules.

Inside you’ll find

  • A simple to grasp dice system, based on fading, where every roll you make creeps you closer to death, insanity, or hopelessness,
  • A flexible keyword based character creation system, where clever use of language translates to interesting gameplay, and where your character’s crime defines them most,
  • An innovative rules system for changing fortunes, failing forward, and for play after death,
  • A few examples for GMs to get you started.
